Aston Villa are set to face West Bromwich Albion in their next match, with Ahmed Elmohamady set to start.

Aston Villa fans have called for Dean Smith to keep Ahmed Elmohamady in their starting line-up over Alan Hutton.

Hutton was suspended at the weekend and missed out on playing in Villa’s match against Middlesbrough.

In his absence, the claret and blues put in one of their finest performances of the season, as they won 3-0 at the Riverside Stadium.


Elmohamady’s performance in the contest was excellent, as he caused problems both in attack and defence.

And Villa fans now want Elmohamady to retain his place in their starting line-up. 

Villa’s match tonight looks highly important as it comes against West Bromwich Albion.

If Smith’s side can continue their good form they can strike a blow to the Baggies’ promotion chances, while strengthening their own.

Villa are currently in eighth place in the Championship table, and could move up as high as fifth, if they are victorious tonight.
